Greek Watermelon Feta Salad

Here it is! This Greek watermelon feta salad with basil vinaigrette from Half Baked Harvest is a game changer. I’ve had watermelon salad before with simple argula and feta, but the addition of olives and cucumber here really adds a difference while not weighing the salad down with items that can wilt or become soggy. For this recipe, you’ll need:

4 cups cubed watermelon
2 cups cherry tomatoes, halved
2 Persian cucumbers, diced
1 cup kalamata olives, pitted
8 ounces feta cheese, cubed
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
juice from 1 lemon
2 teaspoons honey
1 cup fresh basil, chopped
2 tablespoons fresh chopped chives
flaky salt and black pepper

1. In a salad bowl, arrange the watermelon, tomatoes, cucumbers, olives, and feta cheese.

2. To make the basil vinaigrette. In a glass jar, whisk the olive oil, balsamic vinegar, lemon juice, and honey. Add the basil and chives. Season with salt and pepper.

3. Drizzle the vinaigrette over the the salad. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Enjoy!
